I am a big RapidWeaver fan, so I am enthusiastic when any developer adds to its functionality. So of course I have been looking at this program since it first came out. Strictly speaking, you can do all of what this program lets you do without this program. This involves viewing the contents of the theme from the theme chooser in RapidWeaver, then editing the files in your favorite graphics editor. For one 3rd party theme, Chameleon, this approach works best, because of the thoughtful design of that theme. For every other theme, though, you're going to want to use RWThemeMiner. The simple reason is that you have to be an organizational prodigy with a steel trap memory to be able to keep track of everything that needs to be changed when you customize a theme. RWTM does it for you. Also RWTM lets you duplicate the theme and work on the copy, protecting the original theme from your questionable design choices! ;) It must be noted that this program is in its early days. The developer is considering adding some basic image editing functions -- a very good idea. I would also suggest adding some sort of multiple image well, to keep the image elements you're going to be using close at hand within RWTM, and maybe providing a "map" of sorts of the whole page that lets you know which file is which -- maybe by highlighting the filename when the mouse goes over the associated part of the page preview. Since the program is in its early days, I have nothing but high hopes for its future. This is a much needed program for those of us who can't quite do CSS theme from scratch! I am rating a few things with 4s to leave room for growth -- I hope it will be straight 5s soon!

Very good application, but buggy. ThemeMiner 2.6 opens fine if you put RW 5.01 in the Applications folder. It DOES NOT open if you keep RW elsewhere, as I do. There is a preference you can choose about the location of RW, but it DOES NOT seem to work (as it used to in previous versions)

Good idea... something that could/should be included in RW.. . as the previous post explains.. it greatly simplifies customization of a theme and allows one not to have to keep post-its of the expansion slot names and so on... which can become a bit of a puzzle. If you us RW you need this.
